The University of Western Australia, a Group of 8 university ("Australia's Ivy League") and the oldest university in the state of WA, is well-known for its programs and research related to ecology, biological science, marine science (#43 in the world, QS 2017), conservation biology, ecotourism and more.
With one campus in Perth and another in Albany, UWA is the perfect place to study the environment. In fact, 80% of the marine life in WA cannot be found anywhere else in the world, so it is the ideal lab!
